Great Studio Weather…

Outside: snow flurries, with wind gusts to 35 mph — it feels like five degrees.

Inside: A table filled with layers of fiber, the start of about 40 cards made of wool, silk fibers and fabrics, curly locks, fuzzy hearts cut from a piece of Finn wool prefelt I made a few weeks ago; and my hand-spun yarns coaxed into shape.

Next: I’ll cover the fiber with a door screen; then wet/felt/full/rinse; cut into individual cards and then work on each card to enhance the designs and get the edges “just so” before laying them all out to dry; then glue images onto blank card stock.

Felting, like chopping wood, is a good way to get warm.
